A Ghost Story Film Poster


UK Premiere. Director: David Lowery. Starring: Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Will Oldham, Sonia Acevedo, Rob Zabrecky, Liz Franke. USA 2017. 97 mins. Lauded filmmaker David Lowery reunites with his Ain’t Them Bodies Saints collaborators for a haunted tale like no other—one conceived in secret and fueled by the spirit of pure, creative expression. Lowery’s meticulously sparse narrative contemplates a spectral figure who was once a man (Casey Affleck). Prematurely taken from this Earth, he makes his way toward his former home, where he is fated to remain forevermore. Shrouded in a white sheet, he observes the lament of his grief-stricken lover (Rooney Mara). Bearing unseen witness to her pain, the wisp stands sentry for years to come, interacting only with time as it hurtles further and further forward, the remnants of his humanity quietly evaporating. Making full use of his singular abilities as a visual storyteller and finely tuned craftsman, Lowery boldly delivers an enriching experiment in micro-cinema that gorgeously defies categorization. "Haunting love story... evocative.” - The Guardian ????
